We heard the rumors earlier this week, and now it's starting to look official:
Pistons assistant coach Sidney Lowe has agreed in principle to take the head coaching job at North Carolina State, replacing Herb Sendek.
Multiple sources told ESPN.com that Lowe informed Pistons GM Joe Dumars and coach Flip Saunders of his decision Thursday morning.
North Carolina State offered Lowe, a point guard on NC State's 1983 national championship team, the job after the Pistons eliminated the Milwaukee Bucks 4-1 Wednesday night in the first round of the NBA playoffs.
Lowe said he will stay with the Pistons until the end of the NBA playoffs.
A news conference to introduce Lowe has not been announced yet.
If this is true, our congrats go out to Sidney.
